Queen Elizabeth visiting Edmonton, Alberta, Canada on May 25, 2005
As Dutch milliner Wies Mauduit reminded yesterday, today is “Wear A Hat Day” in support of brain tumor research. Join in milliners and hat wearers around the world on Instagram here donning a hat for this important cause (and by all means, share your social media selfie in the comments here as well!)
Thanks, Mittenmary, for suggesting this very fun photo!

“Ma’am, please return to your vehicle, we’ve had reports of a rather questionable stalker in the vicinity. Please step away from the corgi’s and heed your protection officer.”

“I’m sorry to say that none of the corgis are looking at you. Are you a cat person then, Ma’am?”
I think that none of the royals could ever be cat people. Cats simply cannot be trained to show proper deference!
Princess Michael of Kent has always owned Burmese and Siamese cats – they annoyed Diana as they used to dig up her garden at KP!
I loved this hat by Millinery by Mel when she showed it a few weeks ago. Today she graced us with a photo of herself in it and it is so perfect. I love her whole look. It’s so fun!
QEII to the corgi lady: “How did you pull those out of your hat? All I’ve managed is a small child”
“Everyone is so distracted by the corgis that they don’t notice the child with a camera trimming my hat.”
Fun how the little girl with the camera appears to be mounted on the top of Her Majesty’s hat! Hats with royal cutouts could be handy for improving visiblity in large crowds.
OK FRIENDS!! If we don’t look too excited, she might take us home with her and we can also be in a JAMES BOND MOVIE!!!
This one made me giggle!
Me too! As did this hat modeled by Spanish milliner Felix de Martin.
QEII: Let’s see. I’ll take that one. And that one. Oh, and this one. Wait. And the one over there. Sigh. I’ll just take them all.
“We’re not sure who this lady in pink is, but it looks like there’s someone else over on the other side of the street who might have some food for us!”
I’m afraid I’m not able to show a picture of myself in a hat (I don’t do social Media) but I found this beautiful hat that someone else shared. She said it is from Borsalino. I looked it up here on the List of royal milliners and a few royals have worn their hats. I just love the color and the traditional shape.
Love the Roman sophistication and the “oh, this old thing…” comment on her post. I’m afraid it’s just going to be a baseball cap for me when I head out to walk, but I love this event. Maybe next year!
This hat is such an interesting shape. I wish we could see if from the side.
Love the upcycling!
🎶Pop! Goes the girl in my hat! 🎵
I SOOO love that the corgis aren’t impressed! LOL!
Lovely to know that QEII has just taken delivery of two new corgi puppies
“Does your dog bite?”
Forget the hat… I can’t stop looking at the expressions on those dog’s faces!!!! adorable. They recognize a dog lover when they meet one.
